Glacial Experience is a small, family-run business obsessed with customer satisfaction. By creating tailor-made tours for each individual group, we aim to create an unforgettable personal experience for travellers from beginning to end of their trip. Our tours are also designed to support the local communities around Iceland wherever possible, by making sure we pay our staff fairly and by guiding customers towards a positive and responsible travel ethic.

Economic responsibilities

Local-powered trips

We aim to promote the smaller, local businesses in each community in order to provide the highest possible economic impact to that area.

Keeping our young talent

Where possible, we try to use companies that are owned and operated by young people who have returned to their rural hometowns after studying away for several years.

Environmental responsibilities

More bits, less paper

We minimise paper use at our office wherever is possible.

Reuse – Rejoice

Single-use plastic water bottles are not sold on our tours – we provide our customers with reusable bottles to reduce plastic waste.

Be clean

We make every effort to ensure that waste is never left behind on any of our trips.

Advices for you to enjoy Iceland now and later

Delicate Icelandic plant life is easily damaged by irresponsible tourism, and can take decades to recover. We advise our customers on how to minimise their environmental impact, so that they leave the environment as healthy and beautiful as they find it.

Travel safe and green

Glacial Experience aims to reduce fuel consumption where possible, and many cars that we use in our fleet are chosen for their fuel efficiency. However, this is balanced carefully against safety guidelines. Some travel around Iceland requires a little more caution and for this we do use larger, more capable cars.

Social responsibilities

Tailor-made itineraries

We work closely with our customers in order to create their personal itineraries. This allows us to advise them on the best times of year to visit areas, reducing tourism strain.

We love Iceland

We respect the local culture and always aim to be a part of it.

We are certified

Glacial Experience is a fully licenced travel agency.
